High School Students
Discover a Rewarding Career in Health Care
If you’re looking for a career where you can truly make a difference, health care will be a great choice. Careers in health care range from direct patient care roles like Nursing to support functions like Finance, Human Resources and Information Services.
We have several programs that can help you get into a great school or land your dream job after graduation.
Are you a current high school sophomore, junior or senior in the Puget Sound area wondering what it would be like to be a nurse or allied health professional? MultiCare Nurse Camp is a unique opportunity to explore these exciting careers — and thanks to gracious donations from a variety of community organizations and businesses, including MultiCare, Nurse Camp is FREE! Our goal is to encourage, inspire, and support students who are considering nursing or allied health professions, such as pharmacy, radiology, or physical therapy.
Junior Cope Health Scholars
Offered at Deaconess Hospital and Valley Hospital in Spokane, the Junior COPE Health Scholars program provides a great way for high school students ages 16-18 to explore whether a health care career is right for them. Students observe how patient care and administrative teams work together to deliver excellent patient care.
Job shadows provide the opportunity to learn more about a specific health care profession by shadowing a professional in that field. You can learn more on our Job Shadow FAQ page. If you have already chosen a health care career and need a job shadow for admission to a specific college program, please contact us at [email protected]. We will follow up with an application and more details.
Becoming a volunteer is a great way to gain valuable experience while helping your community. High school and college students are eligible to volunteer in a variety of areas. We do require volunteers to be at least 16 years old and to commit to at least 100 hours of service.
